Thank you to all that dropped off items, came and bought something or just came by to say 'hi'. A few of you just came by to make a donation. Thank you. Another big thank you to my mom who stayed the whole time. Her cinnamon buns were a big success and were gone shortly after 10:00.
I always find doing a garage sale exhausting but this year wasn't as stressful as I didn't feel pressured to do it. I decided to do it last minute and am glad that I did. It's very liberating to watch all of that stuff go to people who will use it while making room for anything new that we may need. The fact that the money all went to the hospital makes it all the more rewarding. I'm probably going to have to do it again next year as some people came by because they remembered that we were 'the proceeds house'.
The rest of the day was spent relaxing with friends. We were thrilled to meet and spend time with another SMA family. Their baby girl (SMA free) and Aria were fast friends. We took lots of pictures. : ) We are looking forward to spending more time with them in the future. They are the first SMA family that we have had the privilege of spending time with. Thanks for coming Lisa!
In the evening, the girls rode their bikes around on the street with their little buddies all lovingly referred to as 'The Bike Gang'. Maya asked Mike to take off her training wheels last week and he has been spending lots of time running around with her. Well, just to top off a great day our Maya took off! And, when I say took off I mean that she was riding all by herself, turning the corner and stopping on her own! I was choked up watching my anxious little girl, only four years old, riding around, so independent with a huge grin on her face.
Cross your fingers that starting preschool this week goes just as well!
Love to you all,
